THE THAMES MYSTERY. The inquest was resumed at Battersea on Mon- day as to the death of Elizabeth Jackson, whose mutilated remains were found in various parts of the Thames early last month. In opening the proceedings, the coroner commented at some length on the fact of the discovery of Fairclough, the paramour of the deceased, having been announced by the press, and he complained that all through the case the evidence had been anticipated by the newspapers.âJohn Fairclough, in answer to the coroner, then said he was a millstone dresser, of no fixed abode. He spoke to becoming acquainted with the deceased towards the end of last Septem- ber, after she had been living with a man whom she called "Charlie." She afterwards accompanied witness to various parts of the country, subse- quently returning to London and staying at Mill- wall until the 20th of April last. On that day he left, with the intention of going to Croydon, but the deceased would not accompany him. She said she would go to her mother. Witness did not leave her any money, as he had none. Witness then de- tailed his travels in the country, eventually arriv- ing at Ottery St. Mary, Devon, last Wednesday. There he was met by Detective-Inspector Ton- bridge, who brought him to London. He had heard nothing of the remains being discovered. He had heard Jackson, who was enceinte, say that she would be glad to get rid of the child, but he was not aware that she knew anyone to whom to go for that purpose. Witness remonstrated with her. He identified the skirt produced as having been worn by the deceased, but he could not re- cognise the ulster.-At this stage the inquiry was adjourned until the 25th inst.
